Horses from West Lockinge have been running well on the tracks whenever they've run, but the ground has been atrocious in many places. Ballygarvey (now with Philip Hobbs) won a Handicap Chase at Lingfield last Friday - very easily, and Sgt Reckless (Mick Channon) was victorious in the bumper at Lingfield on the same day. He looks an exciting prospect and will probaby now be aimed at the Festival bumper in March before starting his hurdling career next Autumn. Calgary Bay is pencilled in for the Skybet Chase at Doncaster on 26th January, and Somersby is due to run in the Victor Chandler Chase at Ascot on 19th January. Viva Steve will run shortly over hurdles - the deeper the ground the better, and Loch Ba is bursting for a run.
